Using ssh or rsh

Using SSH,

1) Prints the files modified in your local server,

HTML Code:
 ssh -l username localhost "find /dir-path -name '*.gz' -o -name '*.dmp' -o -name '*.z' -mtime +2 -print "
2) Add command to remove them,

HTML Code:
 ssh -l username localhost "find /dir-path -name '*.gz' -o -name '*.dmp' -o -name '*.z' -mtime +2 -ok rm {} "
HTML Code:
ssh -l user localhost "find /home/inangan -name '*.gz' -o -name '*.dmp' -o -name '*.log' -mtime +2 | xargs rm -i"
Here mtime +2 signifies the files that are not modified within last 48 hours.

Similary You can also give a try to rsh.

Please let us know if this works.

Yes, you can use rm command in find along with exec or xargs as mentioned in my previous post.Please check the point 2. Also make sure your deleting the correct files in your server.
